North Indians are good business men. But money is the only thing that matters to them. These can possibly be the reason you find regional strife wherever they step into. No hard feelings intended. We could see the unrest in almost all the local people we met.
Some of the funny things we saw:
Any direction we turned to, we saw chicks (Indian tourists) that seemed to be manufactured in the same plant. Everybody had the same green, yellow or white T-shirts and mini-skirts or shorts. Everyone had over sized breasts and huge wrap-ons. Anyone would mistake that the huge glasses are the trend of the season. The minute these girls remove their glasses, they would resemble Cinderella’s step-sisters. Mind you they remove the glasses only when they eat. They tempt you with their jugs, But you can get real bad stare if you steal a look. Well if you don’t want anyone to notice your assets, why does your T-shirt has to be tight? No prize for guessing.
Equally unbearable creatures are drunk South Indian men. Down here men drink to lose their shame. I saw three men with a beer bottle bathing in the waves. The wave was washing sea water into the bottle. These men were too drunk to notice and were drinking out of it again and again. They must have been wondering when Mallya got the idea of salty beer. Needless to say, they were half/almost naked. I feel pity for all the innocent children in the beach who had to see such evil things so early in their lives.
There was this famous eat-out, ‘For Rest’, with a magnificent ambience in Miramar. It had swings where you can eat swinging. We guys went and sat out there when a waiter came and asked us not to sit on a swing. He said it was an exhibition piece. Later a fat lady came and sat with her boyfriend. We waited for the same waiter to reappear. But he didn’t bother.
These kinds of incidents happened more than once. We can call it isolated. But piecing them together we can draw a fair conclusion. Either you will have to be rich or at least pretend to be one- show attitude in other words.
We had some friendly encounters with our hostel warden. He was an encounter specialist-when it came to college kids. The first night we came in, he was violently preventing a group of college kids from entering into the hostel with a bottle of brandy. He asked them to hide it in the bushes outside the hostel. Well, the kids didn’t find the bottle there the next morning. The only object of enjoyment in the hostel was the cook in the pantry who came with heavy make-up. Her tailor stitched her salwars while she was in it. She would have had tough time to peel the clothes off J.
I have posted the photos of our travel in my blog. I had to sacrifice bath in the sea for walking along the beach seeking a good shot.
These are the greatest beaches in South of Goa and they are awesome. Quite, white, long stretch of beach will unfold before your eyes and you can have a peaceful time. I saw many local kids cycling their way after school.
And we had a fabulous late lunch washed down with beer. There are shacks along the beach where you can sit for hours on end. The clocks are so slow in Goa. So please don’t hurry up the waiters. You aren’t supposed to do that in Goa.
The specialty of Indian tourist places is that you are bound to get cheated.’ Water sports’ is a potential threat. We got cheated in Colva. These two beaches aren’t good for the water sporting.
2.Baga and Calangute:
If you love crowded beaches, then these are for you. Baga has got a decent flea market too. The water sport facilities are the best there. You can race in your speed boats or land on a parachute in middle of the sea.
You can watch a lot of bikni babes sun bathing. If you don’t have the taste for foreign babes, you can catch a glimpse of desi babes in equally tiny shorts. You may as well get desperate on seeing the couples huddling to each other while you see no such luck in the horizon.
Anjuna beach has no bathing facility. It’s famous for its flea market. Awesome but make sure than you don’t buy any stuff for more than thirty bucks. I saw a shack called a tattoo shop. It had a photo showing the man tattooing Sushmitha Sen.
Anjuna has got slippery rocks, where you can get a few good snaps. We didn’t stay there for long as we weren’t interested in beach with no bath. But I got for myself a few necklaces.
It has the real feel of a prison. I took a couple of risky photos too standing at the edge. A batch of college kids from Mumbai had come and we got an eyeful of delicious candies. This fort holds a special memory for us. While we came here during our college tour, a rift happened between two sections. So here our batch split into two. I guess it was one of the painful memories from the college days.
This was the place where a song sequence in the famous Hindi movie ‘Dil Chahtha Hai’ was shot. It was the story of a group of youngsters and was released during the first year in college. The tune was a chart buster. We always wanted to visit this place. It has a breath taking view. But unfortunately I couldn’t take the best of pictures.
The journey to the Fort was hot and tiresome. We were squeezed out by the time we reached there. We hit a shack and had cold beer to wash down the heat. What a relief it was!
Goa is known for its famous Portuguese architecture reflected in the churches. St. Xavier’s is also known for the undecayed body of St. Xavier still present. The statues and the pillars are awesome. The catholic church is very rich, no doubt.
Some thing I hated about the place skimply clad women walking around. The funny part is it’s not foreigners but Indians. When will these bitches realize it’s not a tourist beach but a holy place! I wonder if they would dare to wear it to a temple or mosque.
These beaches were thankfully near the place we stayed. They are the most highly rated beaches in Goa. We used to go there for the casual morning walk.
